Over the last year our students have continued to progress towards both Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards despite the restrictions that have been in place. Students found a number of ways to combine work for their awards whilst supporting their local communities; including making PPE visors for local care homes, making poppies for the Poppy Appeal for Remembrance Day and writing letters to vulnerable members of the community who were isolating.
As part of the award the students have also taken part in two and three day expeditions to Hartfield at the start of this term. Students were responsible for setting up their tents, cooking area, building a camp fire and making all their own meals. They also took part in a ten mile walk and other activities including football and rounders. The student’s perseverance and hard work will be rewarded this term when they receive their awards!
